Encouragements for the Discouraged Mom with Guest Christine Chappell

“Fellow mama who is worn and tired and weak: the cross of Christ proves that God is not unconcerned about you.” ~Christine M. Chappell

Motherhood brings challenges we never imagined and didn’t ask for, but God. That’s right… but, God. He will see you through.

I’m inviting you to listen in to my conversation with Christine Chappell this week on Real Victory Radio. We chat about messy hearts in motherhood, learning to adapt to new seasons of life, walking through depression recovery, and encouragements for the discouraged mom.

No matter what this year’s throwing at you, you’ll be encouraged to know you’re not alone! In the good, the messy, and everything in between, grace will see you through!
